‘How Often Do Married Couples Have Sex?’ 5 People Reveal!
Ever wondered how often married couples have sex? Of course there’s love, but to take out time for intimacy can sometimes get a bit tough with all the other things going on in life - jobs, building a home, taking care of your children and what not! Some people on Quora answered this question and you have to read what they have to say.
1. ‘Up to 10 times a week’ - Woah! That’s pretty cool!
Anonymous answers on Quora:
In my first marriage, only on weekends, usually on Saturday or Sunday.
In my second marriage, every night, sometimes in the morning too, sometimes multiple times a night, sometimes during the day. At least 5 times a week, and sometimes up to 10 times a week.
2. ‘How often are we intimate? Approximately, every other day…’ - Good for you!
Janelle Alex answers on Quora:
We have three kids and have been married for ten years. How often are we intimate? Approximately, every other day - sometimes every third day. Now mind you a few years ago we experienced a huge lull in our sex life, but let's just say that a major event took place that changed it all for us.
3. ‘It depends upon how intimate the couple is...’ - It does, true!
Joseph Anthony answers on Quora:
It depends upon how intimate the couple is and how much they wish to display their love physically. For instance at worst my wife and I 'get it on' once a week and at best once every couple of days.
4. ‘We had regular sex but craze for the same was less’ - Things do change a bit with time!
Babita Sarmah answers on Quora:
Before marriage I had never had sex. After marriage, first month: 4–5 times per week. Next upto 1st Anniversary: 10-12 times per week. I can remember having sex upto 3 times in a day and believe me this was the golden sex periods for me. 2nd Anniversary of marriage: back to 5-6 times a week. We had regular sex but craze for the same was less. After 2nd year till date 2-3 times a week.
5. ‘We have always had an active sex life averaging I would guess four or five times a week during all the years of our marriage.’ - Consistency is always great!
Jim Heaphy answers on Quora:
My wife and I have been married for 31 years and have two young adult sons, both living at home now. We have always had an active sex life averaging I would guess four or five times a week during all the years of our marriage. We kept up with lovemaking even when our kids were young though sometimes there were quickies or one or another of us fell asleep. Whenever there has been a period of several days without intimacy, it causes stress between us, so we give each other affection often because we have a loving partnership and that's a big part of it. We worked around the challenges of late pregnancy and post childbirth with creativity and affection.
